Artist Books: Sketchpad & Journal Work

Sketchpads, journals and artist books are a key element of my practice and often form the basis of my larger pieces. It is within the relative privacy of a book's pages that I am able to capture observations and reflections on the everyday life that surround us all. This book then serves like a melting pot of ideas, each image and word in direct juxtaposition or harmony with those on the surrounding pages, that informs my larger, mixed media pieces.
